SKYY Vodka Cocktails!

As most of you would know (if you follow me on Instagram), I love a good cocktail! 

With Spring in the air, and in celebration of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, New York, MBFW's official sponsor SKYY Vodka has released a collection of cocktails to celebrate the Spring 2013 collections and trends. This MBFW fashion insiders will be treated to four signature SKYY cocktails:  Classic, Romantic, Glam, and Progressive.  From the Bohemian Classic, embodying a clean, modern aesthetic, to the Futuristic Fashionista, an avant-garde cocktail inspired by the progressiveness of fashion’s most daring designers, each signature SKYY cocktail represents a crucial aspect of the fashion landscape.

I just figure, if I can't be at MBFW enjoying the cocktails and fashion, I may as well pretend that I'm there and enjoy one of these bad boys! 
Classic: Bohemian Classic – A lighthearted twist on the timeless daiquiri, the Bohemian Classic repurposes this favorite cocktail with a hint of apple juice. Mixed with lemon juice, simple syrup and muddled raspberries the Bohemian Classic is served up in a martini glass, making it the quintessential accessory for fashion week aficionados.

Muddle all ingredients. Shake and strain in to a martini glass. Garnish with Honey Sugar Rim with little pieces of orange peel.

Romantic:  Enchanting Kiss  – Echoing the whimsical fabrics that grace the fall runways, the Enchanting Kiss blends SKYY Vodka, crème de cacao white, simple syrup, cream, and ground cinnamon and finishes it with chocolate flakes.

Glam:  Catwalk Queen – Just as fashion often reinterprets the past, the Catwalk Queen is an evolved take on a white cosmopolitan, incorporating one of fall’s hottest trends:  honey.  Give your outfit an extra dose of glam with this delectable blend of SKYY Vodka, white cranberry juice, lemon juice, triple sec and honey solution.

Progressive:  Futuristic Fashionista – Fashion’s next big thing may be hard to identify for some, but true visionaries know a ground breaking idea the second they see it glide down the runway… or across the bar.  Made with muddled red grapes, SKYY Vodka and lemon juice and topped with red raspberry vinegar, the mixology world’s ingredient du jour, the Futuristic Fashionista is served in a gold sugar-rimmed martini glass.
